The top 12 corps to be featured in this year's DCI Classic Countdown will be unveiled this Friday, Feb. 17, at 6 p.m. Central time on DCI.org. More than 7,000 drum corps fans swamped the polls this year. DCI's senior Web developer Ricky Fritzsching, who oversaw the e-balloting, was pleased with the overall process. "It was a real thrill for me to process the "ballots" of all these great drum corps fans who voted on their all-time favorite shows," Fritzsching said, noting that the drama is still not over yet -- on March 3, a new online twist will further engage drum corps voters. Although Fritzsching wouldn't elaborate on the new twist, he did advise curious voters to look to the 2006 winter Olympics for clues.
